A round-up of selected South Africans who were in action in Europe this past weekend.
Dolly was dropped to the bench for the visit to high-flying Nice in Ligue 1 and came on for the final few minutes as Montpellier slipped to a 2-1 defeat having led early on.
Erasmus started for just the second time at Ligue 2 side Lens but came off just before the hour-mark with the score at 0-0. His side went on to beat Lebogang Mothiba’s Valenciennes 2-0, though the latter missed out through injury.
Jali did not make it off the bench as Oostende claimed a thumping 4-0 victory over Westerlo. Has very much dropped down the pecking order since the return of Cameroon midfielder Sébastien Siani from the African Nations Cup finals in Gabon.
Came on for the final 30 minutes in Saturday’s 2-1 home win over CS Universitatea Craiova. His side were leading 2-0 at the time.
Played the full game for Greek side Larissa as they lost 3-0 at AEK Athens.
Mokotjo played for FC Twente in their 1-1 away draw with ADO Den Haag in the Dutch league.
Phiri played the full game for Danish side Brondby as they won 2-1 away at SønderjyskE.
Rantie was replaced just before the hour-mark as his Turkish side Genclerbirligi lost 1-0 at Karabükspor.
The Bafana striker came on for the final 12 minutes as his Belgian side Kortrijk lost 2-1 at home to Waasland-Beveren.
Zungu played the full game for Vitoria Guimaraes in Portugal as they claimed a 1-0 home win over Moreirense.
